Well Easter has come and gone. We had an awesome meal. Every year my family gets together for a variety of dishes made by different members of the familia. This year I made my roasted Brussels sprouts as well as scalloped potatoes. The potatoes were a hit of course. As the day drew to a close, I couldn't help but to reflect on what this day is truly about. As much as I enjoy seeing my daughter participate in Easter egg hunts and get a number of goodie filled baskets from family and friends. I want to make sure she knows that the meaning behind Easter is not a bunny or eggs filled with candy, but it is about the ultimate sacrifice made on Calvary. Like Christmas, I don't want her to get caught up in all of the hoop-la and miss out on the story.
I know she is still young. but these are the things that run through my mind as a
mama Christian mama. The values we teach our children is what they will carry with them through life and course I want my little munchkin to have good values even when I am long gone. I know one day I will have to explain it to her and I look forward to teaching her the whole story.
How about you? Have you had the Easter talk with your kids? If yes, how did you do it?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
